"A fantastic setting, right in the Serengeti with wildlife all around. The staff were really friendly and welcoming - probably the best we encountered on the trip. The camp fire was a great place to sit for a sundowner before dinner. The food was delicious. We loved the bucket showers! We only had one night here and wished it was longer. Falling asleep while listening to zebra munching grass the other side of the canvas is a wonderful experience."
